The world recession has done nothing to stop the population of the world exploding & PENSIONS IN THE WORLD ARE SUCKING UP GDP'S as countries can no longer sustain old age pensions. Its a fact and we must admit it. Asset testing is a start but in NZ this is not an issue as its votes that count & now the numbers over age 65 [ NZ pension age] number 30% of voters???








To be eligible for NZ Super you need to be aged 65 or over and a legal resident of New Zealand, having lived here for ten years since age 20. Five of those years have to be since you turned age 50.

On 1 April 1992, the qualifying age was 60 years to 61 years. Then increased fixed at 65 years from 1 April 2001. To meet residency requirements for New Zealand Superannuation, the client must have lived in New Zealand for 10 years since they were aged 20 years, of which five years must have been since they were aged 50 years. People who have reached the qualifying age for New Zealand Superannuation but who don't meet these residency requirements may be eligible to an Emergency Benefit if hardship exists.New Zealand Superannuation payments are made gross of tax. Recipients pay tax on this pension at the rate appropriate to their financial circumstances.


Your payment will be based on the number of months you’ve resided in New Zealand between the ages of 20 and 65:

Full Rate: Must live in NZ for 540 months (45 years( between the ages of 20 and 65)

1/540 of basic rate each month : Lived in NZ for 120 - 540 months (10-45 years) between the ages of 20 and 65
